Jessi's Kitchen Time Recipes: Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies

My 16 year old daughter, Jessi wanted cookies at 9 pm, so she looked up a simple recipe for sugar cookies. I store my flours in the freezer, and the last one I used was whole wheat, so it was in the front. Jessi, pretty much unknowing, used the whole wheat flour in place of the white all purpose flour. The result was AMAZINGLY chewy cookies with a light crisp on the surface and a soft, chewy center. They have a nutty flavor that I am excited to replace in other deserts as well using whole wheat flour instead of the white AP.

The original recipe is here at Allrecipes.


  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) soft butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Thoroughly combine the first 3 dry ingredients
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, using a mixer, cream butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy.
  4. Mix in egg and vanilla.
  5. Add dry ingredients to the butter/creamy mixture, and mix until completely incorporated.
  6. Using a small cookie scoop or just a couple of tablespoons, place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. You may also roll the dough into balls by hand.
  7. Bake in preheated oven 8 - 10 minutes.
  8. Cool on wire racks.
